Copenhagen Island Hotel is located in a modern, quiet part of Copenhagen, within walking distance of the centre, right next to a large shopping center and Ikea (if you need a cheap meal). A short distance from the hotel is the Dybbolsbro train station, which has a Strassenbahn (something between a train and a tram, it stops everywhere, regular trains don't stop at every stop in the city). The Fisketorvet bus stop is also a short distance away. And if you're up for it, there's also a yellow boat across the channel like public transport. But I don't recommend using this, even though it's an attractive public transport. You have to buy the ticket online just before you board the ship and it is no longer marked anywhere, the time runs from the time of purchase. And it happened to us that the ship arrived full, so we could throw away the tickets (well, we didn't, we ran to the S-train and the subway, but it cost us time). In addition, there is not even a proper timetable, so it is better to travel by metro, bus or S-bahn. The nearest major interchange is Main railway station, where you can either walk (approx. 20 minutes) or get on the S-bahn and ride one stop there. The metro and buses also run from Main station. You can also use a taxi, from the airport it costs about 40 Eur, you can order a taxi at the hotel, neither Uber nor Bolt work in Denmark. Otherwise, you can walk along the coast and stop at some pub on pontoons right on the canal.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this hotel is that it stands on a small island, right in the channel. You have such a beautiful view of the bay. There is also a natural pool right next to the hotel. In Denmark, people are probably quite hardy, because they were still happily swimming there at the end of September.

How to get there from airport

At the airport, you buy a ticket in a machine, the ticket is valid for 1.5 hours from the time it is printed, it is no longer marked anywhere else. To the main station in the center you need to buy 3 zones and the ticket costs DKK 30. Attention! There are also machines at the airport with the words Sweden on them, so don't buy a ticket from them unless you really want to go to Sweden. Then try to hit the train that goes to Central Station and not the other way to Sweden. Sweden, specifically the city of Malmö is quite a bit across the sea from Copenhagen and there is a bridge for both cars and trains. Look for Københavns Hovedbanegård (Copenhagen Central Station) in the timetable. Most people will probably go there. You will definitely recognize the main station, you will enter the building. Exit here. Since we were still paying for the ticket (the train to the center doesn't take very long), we went to platform no. 11/12, from here every train (S-bahn) you board in the direction you came from goes to the Dybbolsbro stop. It's one stop back (our train from the airport didn't stop there), this train stop is the closest to the hotel. Just cross the bridge and you're there.

Copenhagen Island Hotel 4*

The hotel is located in a quiet location, it is quiet at night. It has a total of 326 spacious, air-conditioned and well-lit rooms of five categories, and the rooms are decorated to resemble a yacht. Wi-Fi works throughout the hotel, including the rooms. You can choose a view of either the city or the bay, the bay is of course more interesting. I definitely recommend ordering a room with breakfast, there was a really large selection. The hotel also has a restaurant where you can have lunch or dinner, and the roof and sides are made of glass, so you have a beautiful view again. Since Copenhagen is primarily a city of cyclists, the hotel also rents bicycles for a fee. Check in is usually after 3 p.m., check out before 12 p.m. It is possible to leave your luggage at the reception if you have an evening flight and do not want to pay extra for the room. The hotel also has conference rooms if you would like to have a business meeting here. You can come by car, it is possible to park at the hotel for a fee either outside or in the shopping center opposite. You can stay in the hotel with a dog.

All rooms have air conditioning, Wi-Fi, kettle for making coffee or tea (coffee and tea are included), TV, table with chair, armchair, safe, minibar for a fee, hairdryer, bathtub, bathroom cosmetics (hand soap, shower gel, conditioner, body lotion, tissues). Each guest has access to the fitness center and sauna.


The rooms are quite spacious for Copenhagen, so at least our Executive room with a balcony and a view of the bay was spacious. Only the Junior Suite is bigger. Which rooms can you choose from:


- the smallest and cheapest room with an ordinary window and a view of the city, the rooms are either single 14 m² or double 19 m² 


- bay view, large French window that can be fully opened, single is 14 m², double is 21 m², in addition to all the above, this room type also has an iron and ironing board


- we had this one, so I will describe in great detail, including photos. A single room is 14 m², a double room is 21 m². The room is spacious enough for a city hotel, we had a good place to spread our suitcases. It is quiet here at night. In addition to a table with a chair, there is also an armchair. The bed was comfortable, with pillows high enough to prevent neck pain in the morning. We appreciated the normal sockets as well as the USB sockets. The Executive room also has a balcony with chairs. The view of the bay was stunning, the sun was still shining, so we could sunbathe on the balcony. In the closet you will find bathrobes, slippers, a safe, a magnifying mirror, an iron and an ironing board, I really appreciate that, who wants to carry an iron on a plane, right? The bathroom has exclusive cosmetics from the Danish brand Karmameju. Hair dryer, plenty of towels and tissues are a matter of course. Coat hangers behind the door. And I was pleased with the carpet, I don't like cold floors. Which reminds me that the floor in the bathroom is heated, wow!


- there are 3 Junior Suites and 1 Junior Suite de Luxe in the hotel. The suites are, of course, the largest, measuring 32 m². In addition to a comfortable bed, there is also a couch with a great view of the harbor, the window is glazed all the way down. In addition to the above, there is also a capsule coffee machine, including capsules. The De Luxe Suite also has a balcony.

Triple rooms

- suitable for families with children, there is a sofa bed for 1 person. French window overlooking the harbor. The rooms are 21 m². Equipment same as Superior rooms.

Rooms for people with allergies

- instead of a carpet, there is a wooden floor. Pillows and blankets are made of materials suitable for allergy sufferers. Bed linen and towels are washed in non-irritating detergents. The rooms are cleaned by an eco liquids. The room can be either single or double. Other equipment corresponds to the Superior room.


The breakfasts at the Copenhagen Island Hotel are really rich. Here you will find fruits, vegetables, hams, salamis, cheeses, sausages, beans, eggs in many ways, bacon, hashbrowns, yogurts, jams, nutella, cereals, several juices, quality coffee, fritters, savory and sweet pastries. There was a special corner for people with food allergies. So it's really up to everyone. Breakfast is served on weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., on weekends from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Breakfast costs DKK 195.

The hotel also has its own romantic restaurant The Harbor with a beautiful view of the harbor and with lamps on the tables. You can have lunch here from 12 - 5 p.m., or dinner from 5 - 10 p.m. (it's open until midnight). It's not bad to book a table here, every time we went by in the evening it was quite full. You can find the current menu on the website. We were sorry that we missed it, because the menu looked great and the prices were quite decent, you can have fish, meat (including steaks), vegetarian dishes, salads, burgers, sandwiches, and desserts.

Wellness and fitness

If you can't live without sport on your holiday, there's also a very well-equipped gym on the top floor overlooking the harbor, with a sauna right inside to unwind after a day's walking. If you are hardy, there is a natural swimming pool, with steps into the water, right next to the hotel on the sea canal. Since there are boats on the canal, this is probably for your protection so you don't get run over, or maybe it is not allowed to swim freely there. Otherwise, you can run or ride a bike along the coast (bikes can be rented directly at the hotel), if that's still not enough for you.

And what to do in Copenhagen you will find out in the next article, as soon as I finish writing it :) Here is just a small taste:
